Adding an external guide to the community studio and understanding the use-case.
Last updated: Aug 4, 2023
Hey team. I'm trying to add an external guide to the community studio but it's asking for a slug? Do I need to add one for a guide that is posted elsewhere? Thanks.

The slug is essentially a part of your guide's URL so you will need to add that. I however, do not fully understand what you are doing in this case? Are you trying to create an external guide but the content lives in a different URL? What is the use-case?
Here's an example guide uploaded to Sanity but redirects to the original post when clicked.

Ah that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying 👍 I am not a 100% sure but perhaps you can try adding a slug and see if the post redirects to the link listed under the External link?

, it seems like the external link is used as the URL when you navigate via the list of guides . As such, if a guide has an external link, like in your case, even though the slug is necessary during the creation, it should skip the slug entry and follow the external link instead.(Also, I can see your guide in the list now and it links correctly to the external URL) Thanks!

You're right. I noticed that yesterday. Thanks a lot for helping,
